FISHERS, IN / ACCESSWIRE / May 14, 2024 / Peter Rodriguez' editorial article was recently featured in Think Realty's May/June magazine. In this editorial piece Pete, President of ekō Solutions, a Land Betterment company, talks about adaptive reuse and design strategies of shipping containers.

In an era of sustainability and resourcefulness, using prior structures has emerged as a powerful tool in the realm of design and development. Instead of tearing down old buildings and infrastructure and sending those materials to the landfill, adaptive reuse breathes new life into spaces. Among the myriad of adaptive reuse strategies, one particularly innovative approach involves repurposing shipping containers once used to move goods across the ocean into homes and commercial structures.
